I wasn’t going to come back after the summer, but after I studied here, I liked it so much that I convinced my parents to let me come back to study more!

I see my teachers doing their work with so much happiness and responsibility. It inspires me. After CELOP, everything changed. My dream job now is to be a teacher.
